G is for Geranium

geranium

Jenny’s geranium. . .first bloomed in a good man’s garden. . .from that garden it went to a dreary, miserable room in Challoner’s Court. There it became a joy and gladness past expression to a little orphan girl.

The text is from page 151 of a book called Jenny’s Geranium, or the Prize Flower of a London Court, published anonymously in 1869. Click here to browse the book or download it free from the Internet Archive.
